Laura Madden's Gluten-Free Healthy Blueberry Cookie Bites


One of my favorite foodies and health and wellness coaches named Laura Madden shared this great recipe on her website using my Wise Woman of the East spice blend. I really love how crips-tender the cookies are with the taste of a fresh blueberry muffin! Plus, they are gluten-free, low glycemic, clean eats!

Laura's health and wellness services are outstanding! 

Laura will be at my favorite Honeyville Farms AZ store tomorrow morning at 10 AM for a free great class on making coconut sandies that are just her style:
High protein
Paleo
Vegan
Very filling
Low glycemic index

Here is the last recipe she shared and it is just remarkably good!

BLUEBERRY COOKIE BITES

¼ t sea salt
¼ t baking soda
1/2 T  Chef Tess Bakeresse Wise women of the East spice (or cinnamon)
½ C organic unrefined coconut oil
3 T raw organic coconut nectar, raw honey, agave nectar*
1-2 T water (if dough appears too dry & crumbly)*
1 t Bakery Emulsion (optional)**
1/2 Cup freeze dried blueberries***
*If sweeter taste is desired, omit water, & +1T extra sweetener of choice
**Used LorAnn Princess Cake&Cookie brand
***Used Honeyville Farms brand

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Soften coconut oil if not already liquid form. Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients, except water. Combine the two mixtures. Add blueberries. Add water once mixed well, and add additional if batter is too dry & flaky- should be the consistency of normal cookie dough. Form dough into large ball on parchment lined baking sheet. Place 2nd piece parchment over dough and press dough into thin, even layer between the two sheets with your hands. Remove top layer parchment and with wet spatula or butter knife score dough into squares. Bake 15+ minutes. Once cooled, break apart into small squares. Store in airtight container or jar in fridge.
There you go! Make some of Laura's cookies! Better yet, go visit her class! I'll be sitting in on it myself. I always love what she brings to the table!  They are always awesome eats!
Always My Very Best,
Your Friend Chef Tess
